Friendly staff

The staff at the hotel were very good, friendly and helpful. We had a budget room and although very clean the cold water was just a dribble, the bath needed to be replaced and the toilet needed to be fixed in place. It's location was good, bus to Dublin easy to get. Over all a good place to stay, just needs a make over.

Dated but functional

We only stayed here for one night so our experience is limited. We chose it simply for its price, it was the cheapest hotel available for the night at short notice. The room was clean if very dated. The bathroom was very clean which is often unusual in budget older hotels. The hotel was busy during the early evening with various functions being held there. The lounge bar was busy with some live music later that night. We had the breakfast in the morning though it was not included in the price, it was nice & generous if standard hotel buffet. So together with the paid parking and the added breakfast it is not the best value. And due to the distance from the city the price of transport has to be factored in. All these extras add another €48 to the cost per night!

Quality local hotel

Just a short stay at this hotel and my 1st, but would definitely stay again, stayed in budget room which was perfect in every sense, even better than more expensive hotels I have stayed in. Friendly efficient staff, loads of parking and just a short hop from Dublin city centre, perfect!

Great value and amenities

Very good location if you are flying in on a short trip. The location is perfectly situated between airport and city. Public transport is really easy and the drivers are helpful. Staff was very pleasant and they allowed for an early check in (HUGE plus!!!). The hotel is super charming with a great pool and hot tub which should be open later. This was a big amenity for me so check times of operation if it's important. The rooms were nice but the wallpaper, carpet, bed, and bedding needs updating. The bedding at the least would be a cheap and easy way to make the room a lot better, but I'm a traveler who often stays at hostels and pays more than this overall great place. The bar is really nice and usually quite full with decent bar food and reasonable prices. Buffet breakfast was also a good deal. I would highly re omens this place to someone who likes a good value, great amenities and are NOT fussy about updated and pristine rooms.

If you plan on public transport and get confused at all, don't hesitate to ask bus drivers or anyone next to you. Everyone is super friendly and usually helpful. Go to main bus downtown on O' Connel to get schedules, maps, and passes

A trip back home to see Family

As it was a trip back home, we had a very busy schedule, fitting in different members of my family. Everything was great except one thing, which, actually was quite important to us. The hot water for the showers was on a timer. We managed to secure a 2 hour gap between visits so came back to the hotel to freshen up, only to find out that it was turned off. I was disappointed as we were not advised of this, and as our schedule was so busy, had to leave for our next visit without having had a shower for 2 days! It was a 'big' thing at the time, my partner wasn't happy at all! Apart from that, everything was great, if you can handle the no hot water at certain times!
